Water trips

Viajes de agua


Based on a cartographic analysis of the groundwater of Madrid, a geolocation device will be created to make derives through the city.

This project consists in an urban derive by analyzing the hydrogeological map of Madrid. The proposal will be formalized by creating a tool of geolocation that allows following the course of subterranean water flows through the city. A study of nature beyond the human interference and the rambling constructions, in a search for a territory or confusing emotions. The passage will obviously be interrupted; but however, through the exploration of space and the construction of a new psychogeographic map, the subject through an unexpected twist turn into a participant in the game.

Profile of the collaborators

Programmers and developers of mobile applications that, based on a map of the groundwater of the city center, can develop a geolocation application that allows us to follow the hydrogeological route and identify the different zones through sounds and vibrations.

Geologists or experts in hydrogeology, hydrology, interested in contributing with their knowledgement to the interpretation of the cartography and the analysis of the available data.

Artists, designers and people who like to walk. People with an open profile willing to collaborate and contribute in the global vision of the project or in the practice.
